OUR LADY OF GOOD COUNSEL
2 LOWER BLACKHOUSE HILL
HYTHE, CT21 5LS
WE ARE NOW OPENING OUR CHURCH FOR MASS FOUR TIMES A WEEK
We have contacted most of you by email or by letter to explain that we are open for Mass on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday at 11.00 a.m. and Saturday at 5.30 p.m. each week. However, we are aware that there are some of our parishioners who have not given us their contact details and so we have no way of keeping in contact.
We are open for parishioners only; by that we mean those who would normally worship in our church here in Hythe or in St Monica’s in Dymchurch.
In line with Archbishop John Wilson’s instructions to us we have arranged the church so that we comply with social distancing rules. All occupied benches are 2 metres apart. We require that you wear a mask in church so that we can accommodate two people in a bench, one at each end, we require that you wear gloves which we provide and use the sanitizer on your hands as you come into the church. We require that you obey the of the stewards as you come into the church and as you go to receive Holy Communion and as you go out through the exit door on the sanctuary.
We ask you to book in advance and not just turn up. You can contact the parish on 01303 773101 or Deacon John on 07902 215652 in order to arrange to come to Mass. We will take your contact details and get back to you as soon as possible.
Archbishop John has instructed us to cooperate with the NHS Test and Trace scheme whereby we hold the names and contact details of those attending our church for Mass or private prayer for 21 days. We then destroy these records.
Opening our church for Mass and private prayer has been a difficult job for all of us. We ask that you help us in this by cooperating with us in maintaining these necessary rules. Also if you can help us in keeping the church open by acting as a steward or by helping to clean the church after Mass and private prayer, please contact us on the above numbers .
Fr James Teeling and Deacon John Boughton.
St Monica's in DYMCHURCH will remain closed until further notice.
At all times social distancing must be observed while in church
and on entering and leaving it.
